If you want a good cooked english this is the place for you. A great little cafe with friendly staff. Walking past and smelling it cooking is the hardest thing.

My wife and I consider Penzance our home away from home and this little cafe is always a first stop for breakfast. I have the larger portion full English and by wife has the smaller portion. Both are always lovely. The tea is nice and strong and hot. Prices very fair and the view across the harbour are a bonus.

the fish and chips here are fantastic,but beware of the seagulls they will swoop down on your meal if you leave it unatended,but you can eat inside,but you are right on the side of the harbour if you eat outside ,we will call again next year.

This cafe is in a lovely location. We sat outside and enjoyed watching all the comings and goings. Coffee is delicious and ideal for a mid morning stop. Service is always good, friendly and efficient.

I have visited this lovely friendly cafe a couple of times now. I took my little grandchildren here twice. They loved it as much as I did.

We had a lovely hot meal in the café after spending 3 hours on the Mermaid boat trip. We were cold and hungry and the ladies working there were very friendly and helpful. The food was extremely good and very reasonable. Well worth a visit.
